Emotional Abuse is abuse.. get out!

I decided for myself to no longer be with an emotionally abusive person. I was made to believe that I was the one doing the abuse when, in fact, my behavior is a cry for help. I was told if I broke up with my boyfriend that “he would kill himself.” That statement alone is an abusers way of keeping a vulnerable person at bay. I have been seeking self help regiments to better my quality of life, for myself. This could only do so much. I have money saved up to leave, but no running vehicle to do so. He did hit me once this past year, he said it was unintentional and that he woke up from a sleep and it was instinct. When someone uses their financial advantage against say, a stay at home Mom, such as myself, that is abuse. I was willing to leave the first time he hit me. He was the first man in my life to lay hands on me. I don’t stand for any type of abuse, I never have. Granted I did make my own mistakes in this relationship I should not be forced to live in shame for the rest of my life, that is why I admitted to my mistakes, so I would no longer be ashamed. Living in my own shame almost led to suicide, something I’ve been against my whole life. I only ask for prayers for this endeavor of leaving an abusive partner. I believe in the power of prayer and the first step is leaving the situation. I have until the next week to leave, where there is a will there is a way and I pray for God to provide a way. Amen.

    1. No. Childhood trauma can be overcome through inner healing. There are several studies of children from all walks of life who have gone through various disheartening situations. Your life is what you make it, every day you and you alone decide what kind of life you want to live. I was raised in a similar environment until my dad wasn’t able to drink due to health issues. I chose to not be in that type of situation because it is a choice we all make. I write a lot about hope so I hope you take the time to read more. Life only becomes harder when we blame our actions on others, when we take responsibility for our own actions there is always forgiveness and always hope. No one is perfect and that is life. Best wishes on your journey to a new life!
